Day 8

This is Larry writing this. I just wanted to give a quick update on my wonderful wife Shanda. Her surgery was complete on Monday and they removed part of her colon. The surgery went well and now she is in the hospital recovering while being closely monitored. The surgery was just another step in this long process. We are now awaiting the all important pathology report which will give us a better understanding of the aggressiveness of this cancer. Once again, please keep Shanda in your prayers and thank you so much for all your support. Shanda always says that she knows she’ll get through this because she has a huge support network like the one on the Verizon commercials. That is so true. Thank you again.

Good job Larry in keeping up Shanda’s Blog. I’m sure she will give you an extra star on you chart when she gets home.
We are praying for each one of you.
